Rage 2 may be moving away from any sort of multiplayer or co-op experience, but the team behind the anarchy are confident there’ll be enough going on to keep you happy. In fact, they have a whole plan in place to guarantee it, filled with both paid for and free content.
During an interview with vg247, the Studio director at id Software Tom Willits shared the team’s plans for the game, post-launch, stating that the experience will continue to grow long after the story is over. And some of it won’t cost us a dime.
“We’ll have some post-launch updates that will add experiences so you keep playing,” he said. “You can finish the main story – if you want to finish it fast, which I encourage people not to do – and you can go back and do other projects. We’ll have some free content and we’ll have some paid content.”
Interestingly, players will be able to identify just where these downloadable additions will be placed as they explore the edges of the current map. There will be a series interesting regions that are out of reach on launch, prompting us to exclaim, “‘I bet there’s going to be post launch content there…’”
He also defended the decision to exclude any form of cooperative gameplay from the title despite it being present in the first. And according to Willits, it will be all the better for it.
“We feel like we’re delivering enough value for what players get,” he added.
“You can do anything, you just can’t do everything. So we focused on what works best for us.”
Rage 2 propels itself on to consoles May 14th. Let the technicolour countdown begin!
